[Skill Class] Knife Skills Training

Transform your time in the kitchen. 

Knife skills are life skills. For lovers of Asian food, your ability to cook your favourite dishes is dictated by how well you yield a knife. Sushi, sashimi, dumplings, stir-fries, and homemade noodles are a slice away.

Join us in mastering the blade through slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, and Japanese cuttings. We will finish the class by making refreshing and wholesome Asian salads with what’s been cut. Let's slice through your kitchen time.
